2000 Ford F150--My defrost drains power from engine!

2000 Ford F150--My defrost drains power from the engine, and nearly kills it. Seems like a pulley is seizing up, makes a horrible noise, then runs 5 second,s does it again. However the floor heat works fine. Also, the a/c compressor wants to run w/ the defrost, panel, all except floor. How do I take out the a/c from loop?

Your a/c is going to run on defrost that is normal. but the if the noise is coming from the comp then you have bearings or clutch going out on your compress. if you want to delete the comp buy a belt for your truck with out a/c and see if you can make it fit sometimes you can do this.

I have a f150 2000 v8 triton motor, i drove it the other day it started fine, than I went to start it again and it wouldnt start, than it started when i took to garage they said it was fuel pump and

If the anti-theft light is flashing, I would think it is a problem with the key or the anti-theft system. The system would kill the power to the fuel system.

Truck drives for over two hours and losses power.. does not turn off or stall and motor does not miss.. this is a 1990 ford f 150 2x4 automatic over drive tranny, 4.9 l engine EFI system

clean your air filter, clean or replace your cap and rotor, basic tune up stuff should help you. that 6 cylinder is reveared by ford guys like my self as being bullet proof, hard to kill, but you gotta keep them tuned up, if you have alot of miles on it, over 200000 which is very common for that engine to achieve then tuning is important for longevity

2000 F150 power port just went out

The power point in the dash on the 2000 MY truck is engine compartment fuse panel, fuse #1, 20 A
You might be talking about the rear power point which is engine compartment fuse # 12, 20A
Passenger compartment fuse panel, fuse # 3 is for the cigar lighter & ODB-II port.
If you are talking about the power point, it is the engine compartment fuse panel ( could be both the power point and the cigar lighter were both out )

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

Also handy to have the PDF to search on keywords ( Ford calls the DC power ports, power points if you are searching ).
